Cider and Maple-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Cider and Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Serves 6

Roasted sweet potatoes are quickly finished with sweet tart cider, maple syrup and vinegar glaze.


2-3 medium sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2 cubes, about 2 cups

3 tbs olive oil

1 tbs Guajillo or other chile powder

2 cups apple cider

¼ cup Maple syrup

1 bay leaf

1 sprig fresh thyme

1-2 tbs apple cider vinegar

2 cloves garlic

1 tsp chopped thyme

Directions :

  • Toss potatoes with 2 tbs oil and chile powder. Season with salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer on a sheet pan and place in a preheated 400F oven. Roast until tender, but not soft, and browning on edges.
  • Add cider, maple syrup, bay leaf and thyme sprig to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce to a thin syrup. Remove bay leaf and thyme and season to taste with vinegar.
  • Warm remaining tbs oil in a 12” skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook 30 sec. Add potatoes and cider sauce. Cook over medium-high heat, reducing sauce to a glaze that coats the potatoes. Season with salt, pepper and additional vinegar if needed. Serve sprinkled with fresh thyme.
